I got this spiced pecan recipe from chef Tom Skold. These spicy pecans have a little “kick” to them and make for a great party appetizer. Plus they are easily portable. Enjoy!!
1/2 C. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. salt
1 lb. pecan halves
2 tsp. minced garlic
Combine sugar, cayenne and salt in a small bowl; set aside. In a large mixing bowl, lightly beat egg white. Add pecans and garlic and stir until coated. Sprinkle cayenne mixture over pecans; mix well.
Spread in a single layer on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 300 degrees for 20 minutes. Transfer the pecans to waxed paper while still warm. Cool before storing or serving.
Makes about 6 cups.
